Adam Zagoria covers basketball at all levels. He is the author of two books and an award-winning journalist whose articles have appeared in ESPN The Magazine, SLAM, Sheridan Hoops, Sports Illustrated, Basketball Times and in newspapers nationwide.
Romeo Langford, the 6-foot-5 shooting guard from New Albany (IN) Senior High School, has trimmed his list to Kansas, Indiana and Vanderbilt, his father told ZAGSBLOG.
Langford cut North Carolina and UCLA from his list.
He recently broke down his top schools:
Kansas: “Just their guards and the way Coach [Bill] Self uses their guards. I feel like I’d also fit well in with their system and the way he gets his guards ready for the NBA.”
Indiana: “I like the way Archie Miller shows me the way he plays and coaches guards. I feel like I fit real well in with his system and just Indiana in general, since I’m from Indiana and the history they have.”
Vanderbilt: “It was good. Took a tour of the campus, we went to the football game, I didn’t get to watch practice because the season hasn’t started.”
When it comes to making his college decision, Langford will likely sign in the spring.
“I will probably be making my decision after the season, but after my official visits if I feel like something hits to me then I might make it earlier,” he told Scout.com.
